Your Future, Ore Smelter; Better Future, Wharf Spike (2007) - 9 minutes
Commissioned by St Paul's Sinfonia
for chamber orchestra [2.2(I=ca.II=ca).2.2 – 2.1.1.0 – strings]

Programme Note
Your Future, Ore Smelter; Better Future, Wharf Spike is a piece about creating narrative meaning from arbitrary structures. In the work, two systematic iterations of the same three-part canon are shaped and moulded into a tale of seafaring, prophecy, mining, time-travel and ancient metallurgy.
